Let me see... last year week 1, the Raider fan activity picked up. We won, accepted our congrats and moved on. A few posted for about a week later but then that was it. Then came the rematch. We offered our congrats for the second game and concentrated on the division race.
The weird thing is that this is a thread about the Raiders being down, yet I can't recall finding many if any threads like this last year when we were in first place and I sure as hell didn't see many in 2010 that I could recall. The activity from a "Raiders on the field" perspective mysteriously died down until you got your Tebow together but NOW you want our attention? Riiiiiight.
Raiders and especially Chiefs fans aren't post sluts here, win or lose, outside of a week or two after our matchups. You're going to have to face it, there is no Raider ROD on this board. But the good news is that we have a game in a couple weeks, so the activity will pick up. Then we can dance all night if you want to.
Keep it in context homeboy. I was responding to someone that's under the impression that a rivalry is non-existent because nobody posts threads on a message board.
You also didn't read/ didn't absorb the part about being disinterested with talking smack about a team with nothing but Broncos fans or other teams in here. If there is no regular Raider presence in which to have a message board "rivalry" with, do you think that may have contributed to the lack of threads? Why would I want to have a Raider-bashing circle-jerk? Like you said, none of your "sluts" are around to make it more enjoyable. lol
Sorry, maybe I should have reworded it when I said Raider fans have given up on their team. I assumed the lines between the real world and a message board were clearly defined, and didn't need further explanation. I'm sure not all Raider fans have given up on their team both on and off here. The ones that post in the smack section on here have given up on running their mouths however. That's one thing you can credit the Chargers fans with I guess. Not much will keep them from bumping their lips together like a couple of juicy earthworms if they think they have some kind of edge. Even if it's imaginary.
I don't necessarily want or need Raider fan attention. I'm perfectly fine not hearing from them, or smacking them around when they decide to show up here. I'll do it on a plane, I'll do it on a train, I'll do it on a bus, I'll do it when I cuss. Don't matter to me really. Glad you got a little riled up about it though.
With the games we've witnessed between our two teams the last four years, moments that we can laugh about with our grandchildren, you'd think we would've taken those moments to embrace the advantages and rise the number of regulars, but no. I got into a heated argument with a fellow Raider fan here for not being aggressive enough, but I don't need to be. Not my style and I've done just fine with how I post and when I choose to post.
Your posting regularity is just fine and suits your team affiliation well. You show up once in a while to smack around a Bronco or two, but most of the year there isn't much to worry about. lol
Bottom line is, this was about Baph's false assumption that there is no rivalry between our fan bases. Quite obviously there is. It's just not as well represented here on this board.
Kind of hard to smack when there's literally nothing we can say. But only smacking when your winning is LAME. I've been here. It would be comical to continue talking about history.. because that's all we have at this point really. Funny though, I laid the smack down about a month ago in which nobody could respond to it.
Oh, and DS, this is giving up on your team:
Here ya go. Got any good responses?
With Knapp, yeah. Sure a lot of people hold out hope, but with that guy, I don't.
Oh, and DS, this is giving up on your team:
There was a rivalry thread not to long ago that made it clear the Raiders are your historical all time rival but currently you wouldn't know it. There exists a new rivalry, a more heated one, that is between the Chargers and then Broncos. This is why our 2 matchups are the most anticipated games of the year by all Bronco fans. All eyes are on San Diego for any dirt whatsoever by Bronco fans. When a team gets owned so severely like Rivers has done to the Broncos hate becomes the foundation for a rivalry. This does not mean the Raiders are being knocked out of their historical position. The Chargers are just the most hated current rival which cannot be denied. I know you can't admit this kish as you have stated more than once the chargers window is closed and no rivalry exists between Chargers and Broncos

DENVER 24, Chargers 17 (My Bolts flat out got beat! )
Must have missed it because of the terrible song thing. Good effort though!
Here's the problem with that post. As you stated in it, history smack, especially the history smack you provided, is about as relevant to the present as payphones. You've had a few anomalous games the last decade or so, but outside that it's been pretty much a futile effort. About the only thing you really hold over us is the SB wins. I don't trophy polish unless it's asked for. And imo, it only works on teams that have never won one. You can try to lump me in to the "well you guys do it to the Chargers!" crowd, but in my eyes, you're just guilty of what you're saying is so lame.
But just out of curiosity, let me ask you something, are your parents even old enough to remember those SB's? lol
Let me ask you something else. Are you close to getting another SB anytime soon? Let me ask you another one, would you say we have a more or less favorable chance to win one in the present than you guys do now? I think these answers are pretty self-evident.
In one month you went from bravado to deprecation. What happened?
I'll tell you what happened. Reality happened lol
The thread count skyrockets when a fan's team is doing well or when a player is beast, it's the most obvious habit in the smack section on all forums, from all fan bases.
I take you about as seriously as a loud fart. Just another butthole talking crap. You'll have to excuse me if I take your diagnosis of my having narcissism with a grain of salt. lol
The Broncos Chargers rivalry is taken much more seriously by Chargers fans than anyone else. It's like a bunch of jilted lovers, jealous of our old highschool girlfriend or something
